This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.

A couple more watercolours................

I am sharing a few of my watercolours. I do not pretend to be good at this but I love the medium. I love the surprises that I get sometimes. Sometimes not so much. The first one is just a northern Michigan shore scene. I was never really happy with it, but here it is anyway. 104_0266 The next one was a class I took. The idea was to do the back fill. The shadows under the bushes. There were some parts of this one that came out OK. 104_0269 Close up of the shadows under the bushes. There is a name for this but I cant think of it, maybe negative painting? 104_0270 This next one is not a good picture at all but what I was working on was the clouds and I did like how that turned out. 104_0278 close up of sky 104_0280 I would like to get back into painting before I loose what I have learned. I do like other forms of painting. Acrylics Painting on wood and other things is fun. I am working more on drawing and using crayons at the moment as its easier with having Tristen around.


  1. I think your water colors are gorgeous.

  2. Gorgeous watercolors!!!! Love them all!

  3. So STUNNING! You are very talented :) I love all of them.


  4. Very well done, I have tried watercolours but end up with a mess, using oils give me a headache from the smell, I use only acrylics now, they don't smell and dry very quickly.


Please leave a comment I love to hear from you
